Change

November 20, 2008
By Kelly Chuipek, Mount Prospect, IL

Our country changed the other day
No longer does it think
Of black or white or purple,
Of crimson or of pink

No longer does it think
As separated groups
We took that final plunge
We broke that endless loop

As separated groups
Our country falls apart
But if we take a closer look
We all have the same heart

Our country falls apart
If we don’t look another way
But now we start out new beginning
Our country changed the other day

The 2008 election is what inspired my to write this piece. I am a senior at Prospect High School, and seeing this election take place and the outcome made me think about how far our country has come. It truly has changed for the better.
